Red face Marrakech . Casablanca, How to get there and what to do...

I am travelling ex Asia to Morocco and am planning it with a bespoke tour guide. Any advice how to travel and where to spend more time and what to avoid. I am going as 3 couples and don't mind city jumping. I was told Casablanca can be a skip so would also need advise , is it better to fly into Marrakech airport or not.

Right now my options are Lufthansa or Qatar airways. But wouldn't mind looking for deals by flying via elsewhere and separate tickets as either way both my options are 24 hour trips including transit from asia.

Thanks

Fly into Casablanca and take the Marrakech Express train. A nice little adventure.

Casa is just a big city, a few things to see like the mosque, but otherwise not terribly exciting. It can easily be skipped for an extra day in Marrakech.

Let me know if you want a riad (bed and breakfast) recommendation in Marrakech.

I'll ask a moderator to move this to the Africa forum, as that's where Morocco is located.

(I gotta tell ya, using the adjective "bespoke" is just asking to be teased on this forum.)

Welcome to Flyertalk. As Morocco is in Africa, I'm going to move your thread to that forum.
